Chesterfield, VA

I became ill in 2001 and over 4 years saw 51 specialists that could not diagnose my illness. I was handed a Medline study from Christopher Reeves' Neurologist and was told to find the surgeon that performed that study. It lead me to Pittsburgh & Dr Peter Jannetta, Godfather of Modern Neurosurgery. He saved me from becoming a quadriplegic & worse. I never imagined I would develop multiple Rare Diseases at 31 yrs old, I had to learn to live a new limited life and the only way to start was with knowledge, then with helping others when I was well enough, and I have never stopped. I am a Leader in the Rare Disease Community, a Healthcare Activist, and Lobbyist. I have been fortunate to work with 1000's of Rare Disease Patients, Health and Disease Organizations and Foundations, Healthcare Stakeholders, and learned from them all. Now I try and improve Healthcare one day and project at a time.

My passion is to write, research and share information to empower others in the multiple sclerosis community. I write for MultipleSclerosis.net, MultipleSclerosis News Today, and my personal blog InsideMyStory.com. My interests in MS research led to my role as a merit reviewer with the Patient Centered Outcome Reach Institute, and the DoD. I am associated with the Accelerated Cure Project for MS and the PCORI funded Patient Powered Research Network (PPRN) and I serve as the Lead Patient Representative and Chair of the iConquerMS™ Governing Board.
I take pride in disseminating credible information to my communities whether it be in small in-person or one-on-one conversations, online within patient forums, through Facebook groups, or at national conference presentations. Knowledge is meant to be shared and I am fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to do so. I remain open to new ideas and opportunities for advocacy work and patient representation in all areas of the MS community

I am a patient, advocate for OA,& AvascularNecrosis/Osteonecrosis. Being diagnosed in 2014 set me on a different path than being an optometric tec and apprentice optician.
After I had to hang my white lab coat up a lot sooner than i would have liked was very hard for me as I loved seeing patients , helping them.
But having avn in knee as well as OA and spondylolisthesis in my l5 s1 and factor v leiden I set out on a new journey
That new journey was becoming a group founder of my support group for avn/on.
I found many could not find doctors knowlegeable in this rare disease, so i set out to call doctors in every state to see what orthos were experienced in avn and also thought out of the box as far as treatments vs just waiting until a patients bones collapsed and then giving them a joint replacement ..I also wrote a booklet on avn/on I give to our members free
AVN/ON had no awareness ribbon so i created it also. I never want patients to feel as if they are in this alone .

I've been writing and consulting about diabetes for over eight years. After being diagnosed, in 2008 I started a comprehensive research project to understand how diabetes would affect me, my family and how I could also help others understand my findings. This led to starting four blogs all devoted to diabetes for kids, adults, seniors and even pets. At one time, we had over three million followers, a 6 day a week talk show on Blog Talk Radio for over two years and we received numerous awards and proclamations from the City of Clovis, California for our work online and in the community as it relates to diabetes. We also hosted a Livestream event for 4 years where we had over 250,000 attendees.

I am a freelance journalist specializing in researching and writing about health related issues. My interest in this field began when I was diagnosed with a little known chronic blood disorder (ITP) and had to do the research to find out exactly what I had. I am also a full-time caregiver for my disabled husband and have interviewed health professionals and other caregivers to succeed at this task.

I have used my skill at searching out answers to write articles for newspapers, blogs, websites, etc on various health related topics.

I went from pediatric cardiac patient to pediatric cardiac nurse, and somewhere along the way I was diagnosed with a slew of other diseases- systemic lupus (with many overlapping autoimmune diseases), cervical cancer, and had a double mastectomy after a pre-cancerous lump was found in my breast. Fun times.
When my nursing career had to be put on hold due to my deteriorating health, I began a new career as a patient advocate/influencer. I started my blog, Luck Fupus, in 2012, and have since used that as a platform to travel the country and share my (crazy) story, discuss hot button topics like patient centricity and transparency, and be the voice for patients. I've received scholarships to attend and speak at a variety of healthcare conferences including Stanford MedicineX, PCORI Annual Summit, MMM Transforming Healthcare, Patients as Partners and many more.

I have suffered with autoimmune illness, specifically rheumatoid arthritis, for over thirty years now. Since the age of nine, I have fought the illness and have both won and lost many battles. Joint replacements, deathly infections, and even a heart attack - I've seen and done it all. In this time, I have also written an autobiography, created a very successful blog, and I star in a short monthly podcast. I have become a valuable member of the online autoimmune and "spoon" community, and I am acquainted with not only patients but many doctors, professionals, and organizations as well. If you are looking for rheumatoid arthritis and/or autoimmune illness expertise, look no further.

I am a professional speaker and author. I am frequently requested by medical/nursing associations to share my unique story to help medical professionals better understand the patient's perspective and techniques that can be best utilized to connect with a patient. Also, this summer I release a podcast entitled "People You Should Know". The vast majority of episodes will focus on a guest who is currently battling an illness or a patient who has overcome great odds. The podcast aims to not only raise awareness for unique research opportunities, but also to serve as an outlet for patient advocacy.

How I Am Interested in Collaborating with Companies:
-Presenting keynote presentations at internal or external events
-Endorsements on the "People You Should Know" podcast
-Patient advocacy panels
-Blogging
-Other creative collaborations

As someone who survived a sudden cardiac arrest and was flatlined for approx. 34 minutes, I have interest in assisting health systems in creating environments that engage patients (and care-givers), and health care providers to create a culture of curiosity to solve some of the most thorny problems facing healthcare. A particular expertise can help in asking questions in cardiac rehabilitation and how we might raise awareness and increase participation.

I've also developed a number of presentations and have received positive feedback from speaking at local and national conferences including at the University of Michigan and Medx conference at Stanford.

Finally, with a Phd in higher education and a 30 year career as a practioner and teacher, I am now working to find ways to co-create curricula in med school and other graduate health programs that is created by patients, taught by patients and hopefully reinforces the reasons why students are studying health.
